Halloween [spoRv]

_,,,^..^,,,_ presents Halloween [spoRv] – special preserved or Restored version

| Released projects | Projects in progress | Future projects | Mission & Setup |

Mission: to restore John Carpenter’s Halloween, to recover the 1999 THX DVD color grading, and to add the Criterion laserdisc original soundtrack.

Video sources: 35th anniversary BD; 1999 THX DVD as color reference.

Audio sources: uncompressed PCM captured directly from laserdisc, along with commentary and isolated score from the analog tracks; other soundtracks from BD and DVD.

Subtitles sources: to reflect soundtracks.

Project info:

“Halloween” 35th anniversary Blu-ray is the best version of the movie ever released… except for two things: color grading is different from the acclaimed 1999 THX DVD, and the soundtrack is recreated; infact, the theatrical one was mono. So the 1999 THX DVD video will be used to color regrading the Blu-ray video, while the original PCM mono soundtrack from the laserdisc will be used as main soundtrack; additional commentary and isolated score will be an appreciated addition, I think.
